Macrobiotics expert and health counselor Waxman (Ten Steps to Strengthening Health; The Great Life Handbook) presents a cogent seven-step guide to the dietary, lifestyle, and spiritual aspects of the macrobiotic philosophy. Waxman's straightforward and concise explanation of the basic tenets of macrobiotics is well suited to newcomers to this Eastern-influenced approach to strengthening physical and mental health. He emphasizes the value of having calm, seated meals at the same time each day and explains the dietary importance of eating grains and vegetables at each meal. Waxman also clearly addresses the lifestyle aspects of macrobiotics, which include proper forms of exercise, creating a more natural home environment, and cultivating what he calls a "spirit of health." This work is likely to appeal to open-minded readers interested in whole foods and natural living.
